The online sale complements four days of back-to-back live auctions of “The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor” that begins on December 13 with the film star’s most iconic jewels, and continues through December 16 with additional auctions of fine jewelry, fashion, accessories, decorative arts and film memorabilia.
Potential online auction bidders can choose from Chanel clip earrings estimated at $100 to a necklace set with 126 circular-cut diamonds mounted in 18-carat white gold estimate to sell for $10,000-$15,000.
The online sale also includes 22 handbags by Dior and Valentino, 500 pieces of fine and costume jewelry and 400 more designer fashion items.
“At over 2,000 items strong, this is a collection of the highest caliber, from Elizabeth Taylor’s magnificent collection of one-of-a-kind historic jewels, to her haute couture and ready-to-wear fashions, and her exceptional collection of fine and decorative arts. To ensure the full breadth of the Collection is accessible to collectors worldwide, Christie’s has taken the innovative step of adding this special, online-only component to our live auctions, so that bidders from around the world can participate in this landmark two-week-long event,” said Marc Porter, Chairman and President of Christie’s Americas.
